2-serving instructions (4-serving modifications in red)

Wash produce before use


Prep and cook the chicken

  • Pat the chicken dry with a paper towel; season generously with salt and pepper. 

In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 to 2 tablespoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add the chicken and cook, turning occasionally, until lightly browned and cooked through, 3 to 4 minutes per side for thighs, 4 to 6 minutes per side for breasts. Transfer to a plate and refrigerate the chicken to cool slightly. Cut the chicken into 1-inch pieces. Meanwhile, prepare the remaining ingredients.


Prep the remaining ingredients

  • Peel and finely chop enough onion to measure ½ cup [1 cup].
  • Coarsely chop the almonds. 
  • Trim the root end from the romaine heart; separate the leaves. 
  • Cut the avocado in half lengthwise. Remove the pit, scoop out the flesh, and cut the flesh into ¼-inch-thick slices. 


Assemble the chicken salad

In a large bowl, stir together the chicken, onion, almonds, and green goddess dressing. Season to taste with salt and pepper.


Transfer the romaine leaves to individual plates, top with the chicken salad and avocado, and serve.
